The Grand National Quilt Exhibition: Local Colour

The Grand National Quilt Exhibition is a national Canadian show that takes place every other year at Homer Watson House and Gallery in Kitchener, Ontario. A detail of  "Red Iris"by Carolynn McMillan, was chosen for the postcard above. You can see the full view of this beautiful work on her blog.

If you are in the Kitchener, Ontario area between April 21 and June 23 you can take in this exhibition, featuring about 50 works from across Canada.

Two of my works, "Red Stool", and "Invitation" (pictures below) were juried into the show and will be on display. The official opening reception is on Sunday, April 21, from 2 to 4 p.m. I won't be able to make it for the opening, but will view the show on a teaching trip to Southern Ontario in May.

Invitation, 2013

Spring has officially arrived in Ottawa. Look what is growing in my garden!


  1. Hurrah for spring! Hurrah for your lovely pieces of student work. That rose is coming along splendidly! Looks like your invitation got a little mangled in the post too! Mine has a big blotchy white streak right across it.

  2. Where will you be teaching? The show is wonderful (as usual) all of the pieces are so diverse, interesting and inspiring. I was there yesterday and your pieces look FABULOUS!!!!!
